Atlanta Day 4

Monday was the opening day for the ICRS floor. That meant the start of book signings at publishing house booths, and book store owners could place orders and get special show deals.

Author Robin Caroll. She writes suspense and also has a preteen series in print now.

Jasmine singing to Robin.

Jasmine getting a JJ Weeks Band CD signed.

Jasmine with Robin Jones Gunn who writes womens' fiction and who also wrote the Christy Miller teen series.

Brandilyn Collins who writes suspense. Her books are some of my favorites especially Deceit, Exposure and Dark Pursuit.

Jasmine with Travis Thrasher who has a new teen series.

Children's author

Melody Carlson, womens' fiction and teen fiction

Susan May Warren, womens' fiction, romance, historical fiction

with Karen Kingsbury, one of our favorite people, "Queen of Christian fiction"

After the floor closed, we walked over to Peachtree Center to the food court and to see if Insurgent was still filming. 

It was, and it was the last night for filming. They filmed most of the night. We could hear gunshots from our hotel room. They were gone the next day. A lot of movies film in Atlanta. Hunger Games Catching Fire had scenes shot in Atlanta and so does Mocking Jay part 1. Some of it was filmed in the Georgia World Congress Center where ICRS is being held.

It was really nice seeing a lot of author friends that I only see in person once a year at ICRS.
